Registration Opens For 2023 CIBJO Conference
The annual event will be held this October in Jaipur, India.
The meeting will be held at the Jaipur Exhibition and Congress Centre (JECC) in Jaipur, in the Indian State of Rajasthan, Oct. 3-5, with pre-congress meetings scheduled for Oct. 1-2.
This year’s host is Gem & Jewelry Export Promotion Council (GJEPC) and the co-host is the National Gem & Jewelry Council of India (NGJCI).
CIBJO congresses serve as a gathering place for the World Jewellery Confederation’s Assembly of Delegates. Included are reviews of World Jewellery Confederation Education Foundation (WJCEF) programs, as well as activities related to CIBJO’s ongoing cooperation with the United Nations.
The annual meetings of CIBJO’s sectoral commissions, where amendments can be introduced to the Blue Books—the organization’s definitive directories of international industry standards for diamonds, colored stones, pearls, gem labs, precious metals coral and responsible sourcing—will take place during the congress.
Delegates and other participants can visit the CIBJO website to register online and pre-book rooms at the official congress hotel, as well as view the agenda, travel information, news, and background information about Jaipur and the congress venue.
When registering, participants are also required to complete a carbon foot-printing form, as the CIBJO Congress 2023 will be a carbon neutral event.
CIBJO said it’s working with advisor Carbon Expert to measure each participant’s carbon footprint, so it can then offset that with carbon credits.
This year’s sponsors include Italian Exhibition Group, Gemfields, World Gold Council, Antwerp World Diamond Centre and Platinum Guild International.
